The oM«r is a comprehensive document
and fully ccvers t."« points contested,
awarding salvage to »U of the crew of the
tug Wanderer, from Capt. Baiiey 'i*n to
the oaUn boy. as well as awarding to the
lib#;i it corporation a snug »un for Its
trmit.i». T?-e full text of Judge Har.ford'i
opinsoa Is as follows:
"In the of Marrti, ISM. the steam
ship City of Puefcla, while on a voyajrs
with pa'sser.gTs and cargo of general
merchandise, from the ports of Puget
■ourd And Victor is to San Francisco at
a place on the Pa iflc 00-an about fifty
tr. s south* «i of Destruction Inland.
r.iffcrod a n i*hap bv the breaking of a
crank pin, depriving her of the usa of her
prapr-iiing machinery. The weather v ,ta
stormy and threatening. and the vessel,
thus disabled, woe unable to proceed on
her voyage, or to keep steerage way on
any course, but drifted with the wit d
and current r rthward tow«_rd* FT»tte r y
rock* With the utmost skill of her able
commander ar.d officers, with suoh sails
as they were able to use. nothing could
he done for the safety of the vessel, ex
cept bv putting out a drag to le»»en the
rapidity wl'h which eh* ortierw-se would
have drifted Into extreme danger. When
in this situation the f.rst officer, wl* a
boat's crew, volunteered to go in a smell
boat to th» telegraph station on Tatoosh
island, with a message for assistance.
On account of the heavy sea and the
surf heating upon the i-Tand. the boat was
unable to effect a tending. The men had
become nearly exhausted from hard work
and exposure. when, on the next day,
the t*x»t was nicked up by the steam tug
Wanderer, while towing a vessel outward.
AfT<*r running Into Nean bay for the pur
pose of telegraphing for assistance, the
Wanderer proceed* 1 to the relief ©f the
disabled eftip, and on the way was
met by the steamship Costa Rica. Which
pave the approximate posftion of the
Puebla at *he tin a. At this time the
w<*afher w*e equally and thick, snow wm
falling, ind the sea was running high.
To rench the ship by the most direct
course, the Wanderer had to run head to
the sea. and plow the waves, which con
tinually broke over her, flooding her
decks, fhereby exposing her crew to
(hardships and peril. It was about 4
o'clock In the eft-rnoon when she readied
the Clt> of Puebla, and then a new 11-
Inch n anllla hawser, with a ity-lnch steel
■wire pennan* was quickly sent on board
and made fast. W>en fb* tug commfTved
to draw cn her h-iw«»r. the nigh, rolling
billow* intervening be-ween her and the
City of Puebla caused sucb
upon the hawser that it partM
near the rail of the tug boat. and. owing
to a mlsundersrtadlng on the part of the
officers of the Puebla. It was cast loose
from the steamehlp and lost. In a short
time the tur rwHM 1n sendin* anoth
er b»wwr aboard the sliip. and ahso in
taklr? a hawser from the Ship. Shackled
one of her anchor chain*, and by
rwan* of the double line* thus made fast
from one vessel to the other, the tug vai
able to pull the ship around and tow her
Into the Straits. The tug Tacoma, which
had been dispatched by the libelant. In
response to the telegram from Neeh Bay,
met the vessels 1n the traits, e-nt *
Tiawsr on board the Psie-bla and a.wis'ad
'he Wanderer In towing her to Port
"It Is mainsfained on -ha part of the
that the CTrv of Pueihia was not
In a Bitostlon of Imminent peril, and rbat
the tu* boats In rowlnj her to Port
Tow-«end. performed only the usual serv
ices In -which they are ordinarily employ
ed. and for which they are constantly

k '! >n r«f a larjre passenger stumer, so

current se»tinr on. and in the most stormy
of the y»ar, as heinsr in a situation
of eirtrorne peril and in vlow of all the
iindl'firM fa/*-* tt Is my ooinion that !f
the Wanderer had rot r»a<*hed fhs 01-y
of Puebla In time to rer>d*r as»u*anew
before dark that day. It is probable. If
not Inevitable, that In spite of all efforts
